ANONYMOUS READER ASKS: I graduated from an Ivy in 2006 and a top 25 law school in 2009. Following graduation I used every connection I had at the top agencies to get in as an assistant. Eventually, I got an interview with CAA but it went nowhere (Why did your slaves at WME blow me off son?). I don't fit that storm trooper mold I guess. Ultimately, I took a clerkship and have been working that for the past year. But I can't take it anymore. I have to become an agent; nothing else will do.

There are tons of people like you wandering the streets of Hollywood trying to join the ranks of people like me. You're over educated and underemployed. My advice to you is simple -- move to where the jobs are. Or be a manager. Those jobs are easier to get.
Oh, and they're not considered slaves if they do it voluntarily. Then they're just considered young, impressionable fools.

FAKE ARI EMANUEL RESPONDS: Fake Ari has one simple rule about interviewing -- if they want to call you, they'll call you. Everything else will piss them off. As for the nine months of internships...well...the longer you want to work for free, the happier your employer is.
